Kalkan is a beautiful resort and fishing town on the Turkish Mediterranean.

It is quite crowded by foreigners who have bought houses there. British are said to be in the first row in this regard.

Thanks God (they say) it has not started to receive mass tourism yet.



Some foreigners belive the town resembles the Italian Riviera which makes the place attract moree sophisticates tourists (as well as residents).. Visitors also say it is quite unique in the way it looks.

The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to float upon the shimmering sea. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants in historic buildings.

Overhead hang original carved Ottoman Greek timber balconies garlanded with thick masses of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below.

Kalkan is certainly a very special place with a unique atmosphere.
